Posted by BaCall Burns

Have you ever gone on a zip line? People love those things! They want to ride zip lines in the jungle, at the beach and anywhere in between, and I cannot understand that for the life of me. I hate zip lines. The summer of 2008, I decided I would be “brave,” and pack up and move to Sugar Pine… More
